Following on from the inauguration of the new “E. De Amicis” school complex, the Andrea Bocelli Foundation now runs the ABF Summer Camp in July every year, welcoming boys and girls, their teachers and their families from the Municipality of Muccia and the surrounding areas. 15 days of activities take place in the new building, offering a new place for meeting, research and discovery where the children – and the adults, teachers and parents – can come together and share in the pleasure of learning, of being together and of caring for oneself, others and the environment around us.

The project is focused on the acquisition of the awareness of the value of taking care of oneself, others and the environment around us, specifically through the use of the expressive and digital languages. This is undertaken and achieved thanks to a diverse team with a wealth of knowledge: volunteers, atelieristas, experts, educators and teachers, as well as the auxiliary staff and canteen staff.


On August 24, 2016 at 3.36 am a 6.0-magnitude earthquake hit the central part of Italy, namely the territories of Abruzzo, Lazio, Marches and Umbria.
